I feel like a blowfish/oompa loompa. In fact I feel like I am going to explode at any moment! I just can't wait. We are so excited. We even packed the dudes hospital bag and picked out their going home outfits! Birth plan complete, even if there are three versions. We found our Mrs. Doubtfire for the boys and their bassinet is all ready for their two little bodies. Yes I am in full nesting mode.
I feel blessed that I have had a pretty good pregnancy other than just feeling like I do towards the end. My last OB appointment was Monday and my cervix is softening up like a fat kid. Not that it means much but my doc thinks I have about 2-3 weeks left. I am 33 weeks today. No change in dilation. Lots of contraction and intermittent cramping. Baby A, also known as William Dillon Thomas is head down and right above my pubic bone. I have that lovely heavy feeling and dropping sensation. I have to pee almost every ten minutes. Baby B, aka Finnegan Bennett Thomas is in an awkard "transverse oblique position". I think of them as ying and yang :) I still have room at the top of my uterus but I am growing more wide than upward. I waddle but hey no stretch marks! I love you Bio-oil.
My parents came up last weekend to help decorate the nursery. I am so happy with the way it came out. I have quite the handy husband. He ripped up the old carpet, put in wood floors, added wainscotting and fresh paint. I am just so relieved that the big parts are complete. Even if the two littles will be in our room in the beginning, it feels good to get stuff put away and organized. It is the one thing I feel like I have control over. The rest will hopefully fall into place and by that I mean both head first. We just need to put up the window treatments, more wall decor and then await the arrival of the dudes.
I caved and bought a Prenatal Cradle. It looks medieval but it really works!! My back is really bothering me and last week I tumbled head first into my closet. I grabbed at my clothes to help break my fall and ended up swaying back and forth until I could get my balance. I didn't realize how top heavy I really am. It was priceless, definitely Oscar worthy.
